    I worked at Monsanto Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    One of the pros of working for Monsanto is that the company has plenty of money to spend on its employees. This means company sponsored events/lunches, a professional work setting, and great pay (with benefits directly from Monsanto if you are a regular full-time employee. If you're not a regular full-time employee, then you'll have to settle for a third-party hiring agency's benefits).

    Cons

    I worked at the plant in Oxnard, CA, and there was an abundance of cons to working for this company. Mainly, upper management needs to start caring about their contractors and treating them like the hard working people that they are; contractors do just as much as regular employees, and are just as valuable, and deserve the same credit (reviews and raises, participation in corporate games, participation in company raffles/drawings). Often times, contractors do more work than regular employees who spend countless days off or going home early. Another big issue is the lack of one clear direction on where this company is going. Sure, a company's business process might go through changes, but changing them every other week at the whim of one random person's opinion then expecting everyone to be on the same page by the next week is ridiculous. Lastly, the biggest con of working at Monsanto is that they don't have a problem laying off contractors or employees without explanation. They have no problem replacing you without rhyme or reason.

    Advice to Management

    Respect and treat every person working for you equally.

    I have been working at Monsanto Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent career/growth opportunity.
    Great work-life balance.
    Excellent health and wellness center.
    Excellent personal development opportunities.
    Diverse culture and strong sense of belonging.
    Beautiful campus and great cafeteria.
    It is an Agricultural technology company focused on the sustainability of our food security.

    Cons

    The cons are few and far between, so I would have to say that the largest negative is that Monsanto and its technology is often misunderstood by the public which leads to some uncomfortable conversations outside of work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
